There's something to be said about having a midlife crisis at the age of 24. I'll let you know what that something is once I figure it out.

Getting back into the game. Writing, reading, studying, etc. Running has taken a nose-dive; still haven't recovered 100% from the fantastic and unexpected bout of mono earlier in the year.

Charlotte died, three days before being born. I can't wrap my head around it.

OWS, Mississippi Amendment 26, the world in general.

I need a life change.

So. Yeah. I should really start writing in this thing, or at the very least keep up with entries that my friends write.

2 1/2 weeks to go before Marathon #2, and the back of my legs are ridiculously tight. I have this idea in my head that if I can't touch my toes, my muscles are too wound up to go to dance class, and I go home and stretch in front of the tv instead. So far, I've only failed the toe test once, but tomorrow might be a brand new day.

People I don't see for weeks/months at a time ask me what I'm up to. Nothing, really. I read a lot of books and watch too much tv and exercise pathologically and work quite a lot and eat a little more food than is probably healthy. I'm treading water until the summer. When I'll either do something purposeful, or tread more water in a sunnier environment.

I'm so over winter. My boss was asking me about Going Back To School, and I know she means well/was trying to gauge whether I'd still be working next year, but everytime someone asks me that, I feel like a slacker bum, despite the fact that I don't actually want to go back to school.

Wow, one day into tapering and I'm already moody. This should be a fun month...

I feel like if I don't eat some tofu RIGHT NOW, I'll die. Not just any tofu either, but a particular kind with a particular sauce that I only ate once almost a year ago and wasn't that crazy about.

No, I'm not pregnant. Yes, my life tends toward the bizzare.

Parental's 28th wedding anniversary. Yeesh. We went to the beach in Rockport, and my dad and I played in the ocean for a while. Also--cherry Italian Ice with my mom, finding a pendant in the ocean, cheering runners doing a 15.5 mile coastal race as they ran down the road, and falling asleep on the commuter rail (and just barely waking up/making it in to work on time).

Good days.

So. Yeah.

I have this tendency to get down on myself for failing at life if I think I'm not exercising my intellect/creativity/effort to my fullest potential. And I have a lot of potential. But on the other hand, I'm also 76% miserable whenever the stars align and I'm actually doing whatever my brain seems to think is the current definition of success.

I have a job, I run, I'm going to dance and boxing and even swimming sometimes, I'm mostly happy, I'm not actively manic/depressed, I pay my bills/rent, I make plans with people and then actually go through with them.

About half the time, this does actually manage to outweigh the fact that I'm not going back to grad school this year (possibly ever). The other half of the time, I get all You're Wasting Your Life Get A Career Or Publish Something. Which is probably not the way to go.

Also this summer, rather sudden lactose intolerance onset. Anyone care to name non-dairy sources of protein or calcium, because I'm getting really bored of nut butter really fast, and I can't cook for shit :/

Grandma died last week. I'd elaborate, but I don't want to. It's my journal, Imma do what I want.

Spring break started yesterday; i'm still in Boston until tuesday since I have to teach out in Chelsea tomorrow. DC in less than two weeks for the National half marathon. My training has been completely derailed for a couple of weeks, so we're playing the reduced expectations game, which is fine. I don't mind.

I don't want to do my homework. Unfortunately, homework doesn't care and is demanding my attention like a petulant preschooler. And realistically, I'll get very little done in Syracuse, so I should do as much as I can before I leave. Damn.

JA out.

I have kinesio tape holding my right leg together, I'm nervous about starting a new placement on thursday, and it took me ten minutes to stop crying when Joannie Rochette started her short program. I've actually been feeling really good this week, considering what a hot mess I am.

I am so tired. I can barely stay awake to do my work. I can't concentrate on anything for long enough to get anything done. I've been exercising and started drinking caffiene again and have tried healthy eating and craptacular eating and taking naps in the middle of the day when I'm too exhausted to do anything else. I have no idea. All I feel is exhausted, like there's no room left for any other feeling or sensation. Stop, please.

I have been sick for 10 days. Fortunately I'm not in class yet, but still. That's a long time to be burning through tissues like oxygen and swaying when I walk and other assorted crap.

I want a puppy. Having a puppy is totally not conducive to my lifestyle and I expect it's also a violation of the terms of my lease (I'd check but it's in the other room and I'm lazy), but still. I want a puppy.
